In late 2017, Griffith University and Microsoft Australia signed a Memorandum of Understanding that will transform the education experience for students at the University. This partnership is focused on harnessing technology to prepare students for a digital future while transforming the workplace for staff and is built on 3 pillars:

  • Enabling Academic Success
  • Enabling Research Collaboration
  • Enabling Institutional Transformation

To take advantage of the opportunities the partnership will bring, some changes to the underlying technology are required. The Office of Digital Solutions has initiated the Workplace and Collaboration Programme to facilitate these changes. One of the most notable will be the move to Office 365 cloud solutions for staff and student collaboration. The Office 365 project has been established to manage this transition.
